This year the WoodBUILD event series has been created to help social housing providers, their consultants and supply chains meet the new Welsh Government quality standards. There is a particular focus on achieving high-performance, net zero whole life carbon homes from the Welsh timber supply chain. Join Woodknowledge Wales and partners for this lunchtime launch event.

This year for WoodBUILD 2021, Woodknowledge Wales is hosting a series of events (webinars, masterclasses and site visits) to help social housing providers, their consultants and their supply chains understand and meet the new Welsh Development Quality Requirements 2021: Creating Beautiful Homes and Places. The events have a particular focus on achieving healthy, high-performance, net zero whole life carbon homes from Welsh suppliers and the Welsh forest.

At this launch event you will hear from Welsh Government officials about their aspirations for the new social housing requirements followed by a question and answer session.

The WoodBUILD 2021 webinar programme is focused on social housing but is highly relevant to anyone wishing to better understand how housing will rapidly evolve to better address climate change and our challenge to become a net zero carbon society.
